Last week, I saw a girl wearing a tunic top (emphasis on "top") in a flowered paisley pattern. The problem? She was wearing it like a dress. This "dress" just barely covered her rear and was, quite unfortunately, too tight for her figure. To make the outfit worse, the tunic had long wide sleeves that were too long for her arms. She was also wearing leather sandals with tassels. This was a work day.
How did I know she was an intern? She topped off her stellar outfit with a lovely green intern badge around her neck.
This blog is dedicated to those DC residents who eagerly await (or completely dread) DC Summer Intern Season. Essential to the function of most offices in DC, interns are willing to complete tasks that are often considered undesirable.
For many interns, this blog will not apply. For those interns to whom it does apply, we hope that you use these anecdotes to change your behavior and eventually change the stigma attached to DC interns.
PLEASE NOTE: While many offices are understandably concerned about anonymity, please be assured that we will never post identifying information (including, but not limited to, place of work or residence, name, or congressional office).
We welcome you to submit any and all absurd intern stories you are bound to experience this summer.
TWITTER EXCEPTION: We assume you give us permission to re-tweet any submissions you send our way via your public Twitter account.
To the interns: Please use this blog as a learning tool. Godspeed and best of luck this summer!
